Kansas University has added another big name wide receiver via transfer.

Former Maryland standout Nigel King, a 6-foot-3, 201-pound, graduate transfer who will be eligible to play this season for the Jayhawks this fall, has joined the Kansas program and is in Lawrence.

King, who already is listed on the team's official roster, also is already on the team's initial depth chart of the season, which was released a few minutes before KU coach Charlie Weis kicked off fall camp with a press conference.

King is listed with the second team behind Tony Pierson.

King played in all 24 games for Maryland during the last two years. He was third on the team in receptions last year with 33 and hauled in 450 yards. He also led Maryland in touchdown catches.

King was a member of the Rivals250 coming out of Oak Ridge Academy. He had initial offers from LSU, South Carolina, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Louisville, and West Virginia.
